On May 6, 1949, representatives of ten European nations brought the Council of Europe into existence by signing the Statute in the Queen Anne Room of St. James's Palace. The first article of the Statute states that the aim of the Council is to achieve a greater unity between its members for the purpose of safeguarding and realising the ideals and principles which are their common heritage, and facilitating their economic and social progress.

Ants are social insects, like honey bees, and live in colonies. There are many kinds in Britain, including the black ant and the wood ant.
Driver ants are always on the move and Amazon ants raid other nests for slaves. In many ways ants are the most remarkable of all insects, and this programme illustrates some of their fascinating activities.
